BREAKING: Kings Of Leon Cancels U.S. Tour Because Of 'Vocal Issues And Exhaustion' — Is Caleb Followill Going To Rehab?

Mon, August 1, 2011 3:20pm EST by 10 Comments

After Kings of Leon’s frontman, Caleb Followill, walked off the stage, too sick to perform during a concert in Houston, his brother Jared wrote that ‘there are problems…bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.’ Is he suggesting his brother needs rehab?

UPDATE: Following a disastrous performance, in which frontman Caleb Followill became too sick to stay on stage, Kings of Leon has announced they are cancelling their U.S. tour. What happened?!

In a statement to TMZ, the band’s reps wrote, “We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion.”

The statement continues, “The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break. Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band’s international tour schedule.”

It’s no secret the guys in Kings of Leon love to kick back and have a good time — but last Friday in Dallas, frontman Caleb Followill pushed the limit and got so sick, he couldn’t finish the concert!

After asking the crowd to help him sing, then informing them he was going to go “vomit” and come back, the 29-year-old singer said, “I’m gonna drink a beer and I’m gonna come back out and I’m gonna play three more songs.”

Much to the crowd’s displeasure, Caleb — who recently got married to a Victoria’s Secret model — never returned and his brother Jared and cousin Matthew were left to apologize for it all.

“Caleb’s just a little unfit to play the rest of the show,” one said. “We love you guys so much … I know you guys f***ing hate us. I’m so sorry.”

Later, Jared tweeted: “Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed.”

The following day, July 30, the 24-year-old bassist wrote, “I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren’t stupid. I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.”

Kings of Leon cancelled their U.S. tour and plan on returning for their international tour, which starts in Canada Sept. 28.

Do YOU think Caleb is struggling with an addiction problem? Will Kings of Leon be able to finish their tour? Sound off below.
